Dixie is the protégé of Mitchell Wilcox.

hers and she wants nothing more than to please him. No matter
Mitchell Wilcox finds himself wanting to
make his relationship with Dixie permanent, but before he can
commit, he has to know if he is what she wants. Giving her

The plot and premise of Charade
is an excellent one. While I thought the story intriguing, it
pushed every button I had concerning monogamy. While I
enjoyed what I read, I found myself not liking Mitchell at
all. In fact, for a dominant, I found him unemotional at

Charade will push your
buttons completely. However, being a fan of the BDSM genre, I
thought it well written and the ending magnificent.
